This class of AC electric locomotive comprised 100 members - built from 1965 onwards. The first forty locos were built by British Rail at their Doncaster Works - and the other sixty were built by English Electric at their Vulcan Works.They were built for West Coast services - which had been electrified from London - and would eventually run all the way to Glasgow. They were delivered in Electric Blue livery - complete with cast lion and wheel. They were originally known as the AL6 Class but - under TOPS - became the Class 86s. They were originally numbered in the Class 86/0 series and the Class 86/2 number series - with the 86/2s used on passenger workings due to them being fitted with improved suspension - allowing them to run at 100 mph. Three of the Class 86/2s were used as test beds for the Class 87 development - being fitted with different bogies and becoming the Class 86/1 series. The class has also found passenger workings on the Great Eastern route from London to Norwich - eventually being replaced by Class 90s. They have also been useful engines on freight workings - with quite a few still in use with Freightliner.Compiled with attention to detail and enthusiasm - Class 86 Locomotives tells the story of these locos in a comprehensive collection of photographs and annotation....
